Letter to the Editor: Education ideals

I always look forward to reading The Sun’s editorials...on May 20, the editorial “Cradle to career” held language that for me is unforgettable. The writer praised the endorsement of the Alachua County Education Compact by 21 community leaders and the ideas brought forth from their coming together.

The phrase that is most memorable is “our students must be trained in the skills needed to navigate a changing world, appreciate the art that inspires creativity, and have healthy lifestyle habits and a sense of social responsibility.” What an all-encompassing statement and how expressive of what K-12 education should strive for.
